Club Notes 23.04.18

Two games, two defeats over the weekend for the senior side and it leaves them rooted at the foot of the league ladder.

It leaves the side facing a very difficult task in the programme ahead but there are some glimmers of optimism to be gleaned from the performances in those games against Erne Gaels at home on Friday evening and Devenish away on Sunday.

Against Belleek  there had been sufficient chances created but unfortunately not taken to have made it a  much closer tie than the final six point margin would suggest while on Sunday there was to be a sturdy first half challenge which saw the side hold a decent interval advantage.

That advantage was to be steadily clipped down over the second half but a draw looked to be the reward for a forceful team effort before Devenish nicked a very late winner.

Sandwiched between those two reversals was a more than welcome first win for the Erne Cup side who scored their first success of their league campaign with a solid six point victory over Irvinestown on Saturday evening.

Lotto jackpot for last weekend was not won the numbers drawn being 5 20 22 and 26. Winners of the two £25 prizes were Valerie Johnston, Irvinestown and Mary Kelly, Derrin. Jackpot for this Saturday stands at £2 200 and the team on duty for April 28gth and May 5th  is Conor Foy, Declan Owens and Ignatius Meehan.

For Saturdays May 12th and 19th the team on duty is Seamus Breen, Adrian Meehan and Vernon Murphy.

On the underage front there were two games played both ending in defeats. The under 15 side lost out to visiting Roslea while the minor team went down to Belcoo. The latter were to lead their tussle for a period early in the second half but failed to nail down a comfortable lead and they were to be undone by a couple of snap breakaway  Belcoo goals early in the final quarter.

Games session continues each Thursday in the Community centre with a top money prize of £4 500 on offer in game ten.

First game is at 9-00 and admission is £10.

The club’s under 12 panel competed in a blitz tourney organised by Lisnaskea Emmett’s on Saturday, opposition in their grouping being the host club, Teemore, Maguiresbridge and Coa. The team did extremely well winning two of their four games so well done to all concerned.
